Shallots from T&D Farms are this week’s Fresh Pick of the Week from the Certified Farmers’ Markets.  Shallots are cousins of onions, but they have a distinctly milder, almost delicate flavor. They can be pickled or eaten raw, but are also used in cooking. Be careful not to cook Shallots too long though, as overcooking can cause them to lose their flavor altogether. 
Did You Know: Although scholars believe Shallots originated in Central or Southwest Asia, they got their name from Ashkelon, an ancient Canaanite city. 

Price: 2 for $1.

The Certified Farmers’ Markets are the Coachella Valley’s only State and County Certified Farmers’ Markets. That means all the fruits, vegetables, meats and other products that are on sale at the markets have been grown on California Certified farms. In addition, almost all the farms are located within a 90 mile radius of the markets (thus reducing the carbon footprint), and many of the products sold are “USDA Certified Organic.”

All Certified Farmers’ Markets accept CalFresh EBT Cards, WIC Farmers’ Market Checks, and Senior Farmers’ Market Checks. The Markets also offer Market Bucks that can be purchased using charge cards or cash, then used at the market for purchases.

The Certified Farmers Markets are sponsored by the Palm Springs Cultural Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, which was established to encourage the development of the cultural arts in the Coachella Valley with a specific focus in the areas of film, fine art, live performance, dance, music, and community festivals. The Center is dedicated to advancing education, to nurturing community-wide participation in the cultural arts, and to sponsoring scholarship awards for deserving individuals.
